Taking over Johannesburg for South Africa’s largest pop-up edition of House of Vans to date, House of Vans Johannesburg was a four-day celebration of live music, art and skateboarding.
The weekend brought together over 9000 local kids to the tune of open skate sessions, free workshops, photo exhibitions, barbershop cuts, flash tattooing, and live performances from local acts such as Stilo Magolide, Riky Rick and Morena Leraba all the way to international headliners Culture Abuse and Rich The Kid.
